What our clients had to say!

I have just returned from a spiral horned package safari with Rick Wolvaardt from RW Safaris in August 2017. We had 3 guys in our group and Rick over-delivered on every aspect of the safari from the trophy quality to the food and accommodation, down to all the little details. When we arrived we were greeted with a drink and shown to our rooms where we each had personalised shirts and cups made for us.
The food was outstanding- better than restaurant quality and our chef, Wendy, took requests and prepared our favourite meals. Plenty of game meat was consumed.
We hunted night and day at times – sitting in blinds over bait hunting the elusive bushpig.
We all managed fantastic trophies and a huge eland bull taken after 2 days of tracking was the highlight for me.
We saw so many animals during the course of our safari. This place really is nyala central.
We will be back!

I have advanced congestive heart failure, it severely limits my ability to walk as well as doing most physically strenuous task. Rick not only took my limitations under consideration, he catered to them and tailored my hunt around my ability. Thanks to Rick I was able to add an incredible S.African experience to my bucket list (and a Impala, Zebra and record book Nyala too!!), The hunt, accommodations and meals were first class all the way, “as good as they get”! Beautiful scenery, clean comfortable lodging and fantastic meals were the rule of the day. I enjoyed Rick and his staffs company as much as I did the hunt, they are truly good people. If you think this review sounds too good to be true wait until you see the view from the lodge, it may not be Heaven, but, you can definitely see it from there!
The hunting area was game rich, excellent quality animals and Rick knows how to get you on them! The hunting vehicles were extremely nice and set up to meet anyone’s needs. If Rick can get someone with my physical limitations the trophy’s I wanted he can do it with you too. If an African adventure is on your “Bucket List” you won’t find a better experience than the one Rick and RW Safaris International provide.

I have just completed my third trip to hunt in Africa, and this was by far the best hunting I’ve experienced. Rick and Brady are regular comedians and catered to me above and beyond. Ricks and brady’s professionalism and persistence saw a level of success I could only dream about with five rowland ward class animals out of the seven animals I hunted. The most amazing eland hunt culminating in an absolute brute topped off the trip. The food was nothing short of fantastic, being served buffalo, klipspringer, Nyala, roan… and not to mention Owens morning coffee 👍👍 Definitely planning a return trip in the near future as these guys are highly motivated with excellent access to a vast hunting area. And the accomodation overlooking the river so you can watch kudu, Nyala, warthogs waterbuck and every other animal on the farm walk by at their leisure doesn’t disappoint.

I just returned from an excellent 12 day hunt with Rick as our Professional Hunter. Throughout the trip we were constantly impressed with Rick’s professionalism and passion for hunting. Rick not only focused on getting us every animal on our list, but getting us the best of every animal on our list. Rick’s ability to provide an exceptional hunting experience and continuously entertain clients made for a very memorable trip. I will certainly be hunting with Rick again soon!
